You Can’t Shut It Off
Been a lot on my mind all day long. Situations, people, problems, potential problems, and just an overall heaviness. Seems to be in the air everywhere I turn right now. Of course, I’m trying to be optimistic concerning all of it. Even still I wish I could find a shut off switch.
I know many reading this can relate. This world is filled with chaos every direction. Hearts are heavy and stress is real. There’s no use sugar coating these realities. You would be hard pressed to find anyone not going through some kind of storm.
Now, believe it or not this world has been this way a long time. Social media and the local news just keep it all in our face. Plus more people are realizing that mental wars can’t be taken lightly. Therefore, more and more people are taking their pretend masks off. That’s actually a good thing.
Fortunately, we all have somewhere to turn with our fears of today or tomorrow. Jesus came so that we might have peace and hope. Yes, this world is full of imperfect days. No, we don’t know what tomorrow will hold. But, thank God we do know who holds tomorrow. So, even when you can’t fix one thing. You can overcome anything with Jesus Christ as your savior and Lord.
Jesus said, “I have told you all this so that you may have peace in me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world.” John 16:33
“What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?” Romans 8:31
“No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us.” Romans 8:37
